Tramlines launch 'Chari-tees'Posted by: Richard Abbey
On the back of raising almost £14k for charity last year, the festival are continuing their good work.
Tramlines, which took place between 19-21 July last year, had its largest ever crowd filling Hillsborough Park to enjoy headline acts Two Door Cinema Club, Courteeners, Nile Rodgers with Chic and many more.
Amongst the revelry, the festival raised a total of £13.9k which was split between Weston Park Cancer Charity, Cavendish Cancer Care, Sheffield Young Carers, Snowdrop Project and Poppy Appeal.
Although Tramlines 2020 has been officially postponed, the festival is still looking at ways to support local causes and has just announced their new ‘Chari-tees’ initiative. A limited edition designed set of t-shirts are up for pre-order via the Tramlines website with all profits going to charity.
The ‘Charit-Tees’ project features two brand new and exclusive designs, The ‘Be Reyt’ t-shirt designed at Tramlines HQ, and the ‘Beautiful Sheffield’ t-shirt from Sheffield-based artist Tom J Newell who also designed the legendary ‘Be More Nulty’ logo. Money raised from this project will go to Roundabout, iForge, Disability Sheffield, Sheffield S6 Foodbank and Cavendish Cancer Care.
Emma Draper, CEO of Cavendish Cancer Care said: “We are over the moon at the continued support from Tramlines these past few years. Not only the fantastic fundraising they have done, they have helped us be seen by more families across the region who need our support. Their recent donation will help us continue to provide our therapy services to those who need us now, more than ever, to ensure no one faces cancer alone.”
Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Director of Operations, added: “In tough times we have to look after and help each other. Supporting local charities and groups is super important to the Tramlines team and knowing that the donations and awareness we offer helps in a small way means the world to us. Having met with and seen the work that these folks do, I know that every penny donated helps so many people within Sheffield and the wider region. We will continue to build relationships, raise awareness and money and be in awe of the amazing charities we work with.”
